1) un-screw the pin by turning it towards you, until the spring pops it out. 2) pull the pin out to the next notch 3) turn the pin towards you and watch the date change (if the minute hand is moving when you turn the pin, you pulled out too far).

The advice given here is accurate to a degree. When wound, a rolex daytona IS running. However, it is the running seconds hand in the small sub-dial that is actually running. In the earlier Daytonas, this sub-dial was at the 9 o'clock position on the dial, (pre-2001 series daytonas). The later daytonas, from 2001 on, use the seconds at 6 position for counting seconds. The main sweeping second hand on the watch dial will NOT start until activated by the pusher at the 2 position. That pusher needs to be unscrewed and then pushed to start the large sweeping second hand. This action, in turn, starts the remaining 2 sub-dials in motion, counting minutes and hours. To stop the chronograph function, you push the pusher @ the 2 position again, to stop the sub-dial hands from counting, and then push the pusher @ the 4 position to re-set the dials to their "straight up position". This stops the chrono's function, until it is needed again, BUT the main running seconds, (at either the 9 or 6 sub-dial position, depending on the year series of the daytona) will continue to run, thus keeping accurate time.  Hope this gives you a better idea of how the timekeeping of the chronograph function on a Daytona works. So, to start your seconds running you need to start the chrono function by pressing the pusher at the 2 position. That will allow you to see the large sweeping second hand I think you're referring to here. Hope this has helped.

SOURCE: how do i set the the 24 hour hand in a rolex 16758

Yours is the original GMT Master. The GMT Master II allows the GMT hand and the regular hour hand to be set differently but not on your older model. On yours, the regular hour hand the the GMT hand are fixed so that if the triangle on the rotating bezel is at the top, the GMT hand will indicate local time. To indicate time in a 2nd timezone, rotate the bezel to orient the time to the GMT hand. There's a copy of the original instructions posted at: http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=45269

SOURCE: My rolex second hand gets stuck after about 45

mcdevito75 here, Look for a small watch repair shop in your area, souds like when the after market bezel was installed it may have bent the second hand and now the second hand is jamming something around the 9.

Rolex st6 23zuan original or fake??


This is the hint regardless of Rolex. Look at the second hand and watch the motion! Does it sweep or tick? If it ticks it is battery operated watch knockoff.
Rolex is a self winding watch thus the second hand sweeps does not click each second.

Rolex Yatchmaster 2 second hand is not moving. Please help


Hi John,

Your Yachtmaster likely has one of three problems:

1) the hand loose on the pinion, or
2) the movement needs to be serviced
3) there is an issue with the button/gear for that function within the movement.

Automatic watches must be serviced every 3-5 years as the oils dry out and dust and debris in combination with the dried oils create excessive wear on the parts within the movement. As one must change oil in a fine automobile, it is the same with a Rolex.

We use the same processes as Rolex and are able to attain discontinued parts Rolex no longer supplies.

My suggestion is to use a Certified Master Horologist for your repair. We can certainly assist you with your repair at a much better price than Rolex. Thanks for the rating!

I would recommend servicing your timepiece. Analyzing the movement with a timing machine or a physical examination of the movement is the only way to repair this issue. You may find a local Certified Master Horologist, or feel free to send it to our service center, we would be happy to help you!

Please stop telling people Rolex watches don't tick.


Yes, absolutely correct , all automatic watches tick and the fake Rolexes just tick a bit slower so it is more visible.

We are trying to figure out if this rolex we bought was an orginal, its an ad daytona 1992


There are a few things to check..

Most reproductions/fake Daytonas have a second hand that moves.. if your second/sweep hand is moving like a standard second hand.. you have a fake.

The real Daytona's second hand remains at the 12 position as it is part of the stopwatch function and only moves when activated.

A few other things you can check.. if the three mini dials refer to months or days it's a fake.

If anything is engraved on the back of this watch.. it's a fake

Rolex engraves a serial number between the lugs.. some fakes duplicate this..but generally not very well.

Lastly if you have none of these issues.. the final way to be sure is to have the back removed and have the movement verified.

Best of luck

If it is not a feature built in to the watch to save power when it needs winding, I would say it has a bad gear wheel inside.
I would go here, join, and ask in the Rolex Forum,

These guys are really knowledgeable.

I have an old Rolex Geneve Cellini watch gold 12 jewls.. how can i say if its original, not fake.. jan norway


The quickest way to spot a fake Rolex is by the second hand. Is the second hand ticking or sweeping. If it's ticking it's fake. A real Rolex's second hand moves around the dial in one continuous movement.

Check for a small engraved crown on the crystal at 6 o'clock. Most fakes will have something similar. The difference is that the crown on a real one is almost impossible to see by just your eye.

Look for the word "Rolex" and the watch's serial number engraved at 6 o'clock under the crystal on the area between the crystal and the dial. While many fake Rolex watches post-2005 have this feature, they're usually printed, not engraved.

Most other ways relate to newer Rolex watches.
Hope this helps and hope it's the real deal.
